  • 1 pound chicken breast fillets (sliced into 1 inch chunks)
  • For the chicken marinade:
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped

  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt (not table salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
